germany. while europe struggles to keep up with the flow, the united states plans to take in 10,000 more refugees in the next fiscal year. so far, it has admitted 1500 sere ian refugees since the start of the syrian war in 2011. most of them, though, have come this year. this news comes amid growing pressure for the united states to increase the number of refugees that it takes in. hungary appears to be ready to crackdown on refugees. that country has been building a 3 1/2 meter fence around the 11 1/2 -- and it is a half feet long border with syria to keep up with refugees to keep them out. the military has started to start exercises along the southern border. the u.n. warned hungary to expect 42,000 more refugees in the coming days. asylum seekers have been making way to greece and macedonia and travel to serbia and hungary

10:16 pm
there. the fence is covered in plant vegetation, basically, coated in, because the water was with so full of the grass and what not. the level, we're told, was probably up to my neck or higher, stretching over this parking lot and stranding dozens of people overnight in the shopping center behind me. they had to actually sleep in the aisles. this morning, we watched at daybreak as japanese military helicopters came in and started to rescue people from the rooftop. a lot of them came from homes in this neighborhood, including this apartment building here where we're told the first floor, all of those units were flooded. people were up on the balconies, on the second floor. you may remember seeing buildings like this during the height of the flooding yesterday when we saw the dramatic water rescues. now we are able to see, as you can see, we are able to stand in the street, which is a promising sign. the hope, of course, there isn't anymore rain. you can see the sun is out and the water is receding. people are starting to return to their homes and assess the
10:17 pm
damage. george? >> we see that happening right there behind you, will. some people walking through that water that you are standing in. to get a better sense of it, though, is it just low-lying areas, will, or is it as we see there? is it really throughout the city? >> reporter: there are large portions of the city like this right now. there are other areas that are above ground. that's where we have evacuation centers like the one we reported from the this last hour where they were actually flying people by helicopter from neighborhoods like this. so while the flooding is widespread and there were tens of thousands of people who are still under evacuation orders right now. police officers here making sure they are safe and they don't put themselves in danger. there are also areas that are dry. good news here on the ground is that because we haven't seen any severe rain in the city, we haven't seen the flooding intensify. it is only going down.
10:18 pm
the concern farther up japan's eastern coast, however, is with rain in the forecast an evacuation advisory in effect for a half million people, there's fears about landslides, more flooding and we know that in this prefecture and others there are three people confirmed dead and 22 people missing here who have not been accounted for and so, of course, the hope is they are out there somewhere and they will be found and they will be sorted out. with 22 people missing this far beyond the flooding, as they search house to house there's concern with what they may find. >> house to house and street by street flooded there. my colleague natalie allen last hour said it reminded her with what we saw with new orleans. cnn's will ripley live thank you for your reporting there. this record-breaking rainfall in japan has breached a levee. let's turn to our meteorologist
10:19 pm
derek van dam. he's following the situation there. when the levee was breached -- >> one stage the levee had a breach of 20 meters long. then it grew to 80 meters long, covering 37 scare kwm kilometers with floodwater. coming out of that area we can't get enough of these visuals because it i helps to tell the story of the hardships of houses washed down, torrent of water and rescue scenes taking place, as well. getting to my graphics, you can see what a difference a day makes. tokyo and surrounding areas, there's breaks in the cloud cover allowing for the water to subside. this is the scene a mere 24 to 36 hours ago. 37 square kilometers of flooded areas. there are several ways that water can breach a levee.
10:20 pm
sometimes it can seep through that barrier, or it can overtop the levee. that was the particular case with this river across northeastern japan. that's animation showing that particular scenario. you can see the levee that was overtopped. it grew from 20 meters to 80 meters inundating buildings and allowing for this particular hotel to fall in to the raging waters below. we set several records. 24, 36 hour and 72-hour rainfall totals. you can see wednesday was the wettest day in history for that particular location a brief break in the weather. however, showers are returning late sunday in to monday. we will switch gears quickly. this is across the united states and the northern hemisphere. typically in to late august, early september, the dog days of summer. the weather patterns are starting to change and you felt it if you are along the east coast, as well.
10:21 pm
we have had record-breaking heat in new york city. 62 days in a row where we had 82 degree temperatures, that's fahrenheit. but yesterday we failed to break that 80 degree temperature mark. the record now stands at 62 consecutive days. i don't think we will be seeing that anytime soon again. >> thank you so much. now on to seoul, south korea. a court there sentenced kim jong 12 years behind bars for attacking the ambassador to that country in march. police say he was angry about joint military drills between the united states and south korea. it took 80 stitches to close the stab wound to mark lippert's lower jaw with. he was about to deliver a speech when kim attacked him. a nightmare playing out along a busy highway in phoenix, arizona. police are searching for the suspect or suspects behind a string of shootings along

10:23 pm
police say the incidents happening at random times and random targets in an eight-mile span making some residents think twice with about taking hirks-10. >> what i heard and seen is people are taking different routes. >> they are going a different way. >> they are staying to the surface streets. >> reporter: the department of public safety calling the incidents acts of domestic terrorism. >> there are arizonaens who are frightened, scared. concerned about their safety and those of their loved ones. that's terrorism. >> reporter: while a tip flashes on a freeway sign, an army of police patrol from the skies and the ground. along interstate 10, the back allies, not just police looking for t shooter but a group of citizens are as well. they call themselves volt force. >> we are an armed volunteer crime fighting force. >> reporter: their founder jokingly describes them as guardian angels on steroids. some bounty hunters or former
10:24 pm
law enforcement. all armed to the teeth. are you a vigilante force? >> people have used that term in the past. i don't like that term because we don't go above the law. we're not out here slamming people to the ground. >> reporter: for five years the volunteer group had been patroling the crime-ridden neighborhoods. now shifting their focus to i-10 looking for places a shooter might hide and take aim. >> what happens if you find the shooter? what do you do? >> first thing we will do is we'll call our dps contact immediately. and i guarantee you there's going to be people around here so fast you couldn't even blink. >> like an army of people. >> oh, yeah. oh, yeah. >> reporter: sara sidner, cnn, phoenix, arizona. new york's police chief says he has apologized to former tennis star james blake over what police are calling an apparent case of mistaken identity. blake was tackled and handcuffed by plain clothes officers outside of his manhattan hotel on wednesday.
10:25 pm
bill bratton says the incident never should have happened and that race was not a factor. blake says no one should have been treated the way he was. >> they picked me up and body slammed me and put me on the ground and told me to turn over and shut my mouth and put the cuffs on me. i told him, the first words out of my mouth, i'm going to 100% cooperate. i had my credential for the u.s. open in the back pocket. i said please, check. that you can tell i'm a former player, i did well at the u.s. open. i'd like to clear my name and just -- i told him that and he wasn't happy. i said, okay. i said the worst you will find is a speed ing ticket if you are run mig license. >> police went to the hotel to arrest people who were buying high-end shoes with fraudulent credit cards. the father of venus and serena willems says he believes race was a factor in the incident with blake.
10:26 pm

10:32 pm
polls, but not very popular with a number of his party rivals. listen. >> i think that mr. trump, as the front runner, needs to be treated like all candidates and needs to share what his experience s are to be president of the united states, what his ideas are. so far, at least, he has not been serious about that. i think he believes he can insult his way to the presidency. >> his solution to destroying isil, listen to this, we're going to go to iraq and syria and get their oil to pay for our wounded warriors. that's not going to destroy isil. that will turn everybody in the middle east against us and help isil. when you say things like that you don't know what the middle east is about and no idea what you are saying. i think he is unqualified to be commander of chief and i know i am. >> donald trump is not a serious candidate. he's a narcissist. he's an ego maniac. the only thing he believes in is himself. donald trump is shallow. he has no understanding of
10:33 pm
policy. he is full of bluster. he has no substance. he lacks the intellectual curiosity to even learn. you can't argue policy with this guy. the only thing that donald trump believes in is himself. >> republican debate here on cnn will be next wednesday night. now we know who will take the stage on it. here's a look at the 11 candidates who will participate in this primetime event. donald trump, ben carson and jeb bush are in the mix. five candidate s who didn't make the cut will participate in a debate earlier in the night which will be round one. earlier, i spoke to our senior political reporter and gave his thoughts about the debate and the controversial republican front runner. listen. >> this is going to be fascinating, george. jeb bush was the person who was expected to be the front runner in this race. the establishment can day. he's got all of the money but what we have seen in this interesting political season is these two with outsider
10:34 pm
candidates, donald trump, the billionaire real estate mogul and ben carson, who's a noted neurosurgeon, neither of whom are professional politicians, have turned everything on their head, on its head and they are leading the polls. donald trump is leading with 32%, i think it was in the latest cnn poll. ben carson is second place in the national polls right now. this is really interesting. if you add ben carson and donald trump together, you are getting over 50% of outsider nonprofessional candidates leading the race. jeb bush, who was as i said supposed to be the front runner and really going to have to try to make noise in this debate, try to get in the middle of donald trump and ben carson and try to revive his campaign at this point. >> that's round two. the primetime debate. before that, there will be round one with five men on stage. tell us more about that. >> that's right. this republican field is so huge, it's 17 candidates in all. they have to split it in to two
10:35 pm
debates just to get everybody on stage. the first, the primetime debate, the one that really matters, is the top ten candidates who have averaged in the top ten over the last two months. plus carly fiorina who was in the second tier debate last time around but because she has done so well this time around she has been boost ed to the primetime deba debate. then you have the second debate which has five candidates including lindsey graham from south carolina and the former governor of texas rick perry. these are people that have not managed to get in to the top tier defwat that so they have their own debate and one will try to get such a god mans they are promoted to the primetime debate next time around. >> when it comes to the primetime debate and donald trump, his most recent comments about carly rhee reena, who was mentioned is in the primetime debate had lot of people talking. again, he is trending upward with republican women voters. >> that's right.
10:36 pm
i think what you are seeing is the fact that trump has touched a nerve in the heart land. you are having a certain segment of the republican electorate that responds to whatever he says because they are so angry about washington. it's not really they are listening to every single announcement he makes, every single individual policy. what they are doing is responding to his broader message. he's tapped in to this vehement distrust of washington and professional politicians. so i don't think -- and i have been in some of these events that donald trump has done. i don't think republican women are hearing what he says about carly fiorina and thinking this is sexist, i'm not going to vote for this man. they are responding to his wider message. where it could be a problem is if donald trump were to win the nomination he'd need to do well among women voters to win the presidency. that is where you could see a problem. today we have seen hillary clinton come out and criticize donald trump for what she says
10:37 pm
is a massage nisic comments about women and she is thinking of an election strategy to use against him. >> one interesting side note from john king who points out that this time, last political cycle it was rick perry who republican voters had in the lead. right now it is donald trump. steven colinson, thank you for your insight. >> thank you, george. we are learning new details about a pentagon investigation in to whether top u.s. military officials deliberately manipulated spell jens reports about isis. the startling allegations even suggest reports were altered to support a public narrative that the u.s. is winning the war against that terror group. cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr has this story. >> reporter: allegations that military intelligence about isis was altered to make senior officials possibly even president obama since the war was going better than it was are
10:38 pm
now being investigated by the pentagon's watch dog, the inspector general. >> the investigation will play itself out. we'll figure out who did something wrong and be better as a result of a very open investigation. >> reporter: the investigation first reported by the "new york times" has already led to action by defense secretary ash carter. >> the secretary has directed the under secretary of intelligence to consult with his leadership, with the combatant commands to reinforce that message, unvarnished, trarns parent intelligence. >> intelligence analysts claim their reports were manipulated by military bosses according to the news site daily beast. >> there are vary casuatioiatio the data says so off clash among analysts of what it really means. at some point someone has to say this is the best judgment and present that to our decision
10:39 pm
makers. >> reporter: two defense officials say commanders can put their own interpretations in a report, but cannot change the underlying analysis. so far, it's not clear how widespread the allegation s may be and when the potential problem happened. there's no suggestion yet this is a repeat of the run up to the 2003 invasion of iraq when faulty intelligence about iraq's weapons of mass destruction formed the u.s. justification for war. >> we are giving you facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence. >> reporter: the current war against isis remains a mixed picture. the pentagon says isis can no longer operate freely in up to 30% of the areas of iraq it once controlled. but it notes its influence in syria remains unchanged. and general martin dempsey, chairman of the joint chiefs
10:40 pm
warned the fight against isis is stalemated. though he adds its long-term prospects are getting, quote, dimmer. >> that was cnn pentagon correspondent barb where starr reporting there. washington, d.c. gun control advocates gathered on capitol hill on thursday. they came together vowing to do whatever it takes to fix what they call america's broken gun laws. the father of a virginia news reporter, who was shot and killed on live television, led the protests and demanded that something be done to stop gun violence in the united states. >> we must continue to mount pressure on our elected officials here in washington and at home in your home state. the overwhelming majority of americans agree with common sense reforms. but too many members of congress remain in the pocket of the gun lobby and that has got to change. we also have to be aware the
10:41 pm
so-called common wisdom and senator cane put it eloquently when he said, we can't take on the gun lobby. that's just wrong. we can. we must. and we will. >> you'll remember that andy parker's daughter ail alison and her photojournalist allen ward were killed last month in the shooting that happened on live television. you are watching cnn newsroom. still to come this hour, how a discovery in a narrow cave could transform how we view evolution. that's ahead. the human foot has always been good at... it's unleashing great power. the is performance line just got a power boost. introducing the lexus is 200 turbo and is 300 awd v6.

10:45 pm
the vote passed 119-8. israel and the u.s. were among the no votes. israeli embassy slammed the move. >> the real question we face is not whether palestinians will raise the flag but whether the united nations will raise a white flag and surrender the principles of this institution itself. make no mistake, the goal of this resolution is a photo op. the palestinians want to bring together world dignitaries and the media to gather around and watch as mac mud abbas raises the flag. they plan to use the prestige of the u.n. as a backdrop for this this charade. >> u.n. secretary general ban ki moon has 20 days to implement it. experts say they have found

11:01 pm
and we want it begin this hour in japan where water is receding after raging floods forced more than 400,000 people to run from their homes. the pictures, this video, has been astonishing. fast-rising water spawned by tropical storm swept away houses and other structures. helicopters plucked some people from rooftops where they had been stranded for many hours. look at them. my goodness. at least three people are dead. 22 are missing. some areas got as much as 60 centimeters or two feet of rain since monday. cnn's will ripley has been covering this story for us. he jins me now live from north of the capital, tokyo. will, when i first saw this
11:02 pm
footage, i thought was file footage if to the tsunami a few years ago. i couldn't believe this was actually happening to japan again. >>. [ inaudible ] >> at one point we are told the water was up to the grown area -- [ inaudible ] on the rooftop, waiting for -- [ inaudible ] >> all right, will, stand by there. we are having trouble with your audio. we will try to reestablish with will. but we're gooding it a story he filed a short time ago. here he is. >> reporter: a wall of water in eastern japan, leaving many stranded on rooftops, balconies, anywhere above water. japan activating the military, bringing in helicopters, rescue teams, pulling p em it safety, searching flooded buildings for anyone trapped inside. japan prone to all kind of
11:03 pm
natural disasters but the rapidly rising river took many by surprise thursday. this is the first time this has happened, says one long time resident, tens of thousands got evacuation orders. many had just minutes. carrying what belongs they could, unsure of what to do next. i haven't seen anything like this in decades, says this woman. she is one of thousands spending the night at evacuation centers. 100 of them providing food, water and medicine. japanese prime minister abe warning the region can see more unprecedented heavy rain, meaning potentially more flooding at the already water log had fukushima nuclear plant. heavy rains overwhelming drainage systems causing radio active water it leak into the ocean for several hours. tepco said the situation is contained. outside radiation levels, normal
11:04 pm
for now. the full scale of this disaster unknown. also unknown, how many people may still be waiting for rescue, surrounded by floodwaters, hoping their house won't be the next one dragged away. will ripley, cnn, tokyo. >> okay, back live now with will. we've got better audio from him. that story is just unreal, will. new what were you saying? please continue. >> reporter: well, i just wanted to show you that those people, many of whom were stranded, now are not able or now are able to actually get back to their homes. i'm going it stay put so that you can, i think if i move around my audio cable gets messed up. but to show those two guys behind with you, at one point had to spend the night at emergency shelter. but now they can safely walk done the street and get a look at all of the damage. there is considerable damage. you see the sheer power of the
11:05 pm
water, natalie. it pushed the fence, flipped over the cars that were floating through the neighborhoods and just landed as the water has now receded. so there's going to be a whole lot of damage. and the sun is out. is that good news. the fear is that if there is more rain fall in these already water-log had areas, this flooding could start back up again. >> right. and unfortunately, that is the forecast in the next 48 hours. but i'm curious, in your story, many people didn't realize that these flood with theers were headed their way. didn't have much time. how much time did they have? a lot of people did get out. >> true. [ inaudible ] >> sorry about that. i shouldn't have push mid luck and asked a question. will ripley there, live, standing in water just north of
11:06 pm
tokyo. we will of course stay on top of this story for you. and we do turn to the migrant crisis now. the united states will take an additional 10,000 syrian refugees over the coming year. hundreds of thousands are streaming into europe, fleeing the war in syria. many of them, and many poverty in north africa. riot police in macedonia beat migrants as you see here with batons as they try to enter the country from greece. jordan's queen spoke with cnn's becky anderson about the situation. >> these people are not coming to your country by choice. and i actually, i hear that this crisis is being referred to as a migrant crisis.
11:07 pm
they're not migrants. migrants is someone who chooses to go to another country because they are looking for a better job, education or to reunite thr family. they can choose to go back to their country and know they have the protection of their government. where as refugees are little rattra literally running for their lives. >> traveling through macedonia and serbia and hungary, often times on foot. trying to reach germany and spe sweden which have more favorable migrant rules. refugees landing on the greek island of lepos, senior correspondent ivan watson is on a boat nearby and he joins me now on the phone with more about the situation there that he's been seeing. ivan, hello.
11:08 pm
>> hi, i'm here on the greek island of lesbos. moments ago we witnessed at least four boats, inflatable rafts, loaded with scores of migrants and refugees landing in about a half hour of time on the coast of lesbos. and as the high grants and refugees spilled off the boat into the water and on to the beaches, they were cheering, embracing each other, waving thumbs up. one man kissed me on the cheeks moments after he got on to dry land. that is a scene repeating itself hour after hour, day after day, on this greek island as the stream of humanity coming, smuggling themselves across the sea from turkey have affectively turned this greek island of lesbos into an unofficial back door into europe. natalie? >> yes. it's more like a staging ground. we're looking at a photo right
11:09 pm
new that i'm told that you just took a few moments ago and it seems like everyone getting off this boat, they have life jackets. and that has been an issue with what we've seen from the people that get in these very unsafe dinghys, to make this crossing, that some of them don't have life jackets. but the situation, basically, is ivan, no matter the steps that people are trying to take to stop so many from coming and endangering their lives, they're still coming from where you are. >> absolutely. and yes, everybody has those orange life jackets. call them the unofficial uniform of the migrants trying to get it europe. carrying inner tubes also in case there's an accident at sea. and it is remarkable how organized many of these migrants and refugees are. they are carrying waterproof pouchs that are holding their
11:10 pm
smart phones, their identity cards. they've told me they have the phone numbers programmed in their phones of the greek coast guard should their boats get into trouble while making hour-long journey across the sea from turkey. and they even post distress gps signals on facebook to alert the greek authorities. so these are very coordinated, very organized migrants who are coming here to greece everyday. >> well, they need something going for them because we're looking at this video right now of these people that just came ashore and that is one crowded boat. so we're glad they made it safely and we hope that the trip onward will be a safe one as well. that man certainly is relieved. ivan watson talking with us. thanks so much, ivan. >> in italy, most migrants are coming there from african countries ravaged by war or some by poverty.
11:11 pm
of course they too hoping to find a better life. not everyone has welcomed these migrant but some people are devoting their time to make the transition easier. senior international correspondent ben wedeman has that for us from italy. >>. >> reporter: the jokes come easy when father luca is around. humor, perhaps, the best medicine for the uncertainty gripping those who have washed up on italy's shores. father luca helped run the temporary home for nigerians and others after they applied for asylum. >> if you will come back, you risk to be killed or your parent be killed and so on. >> reporter: briefing them on how to navigate the italian
11:12 pm
bureaucracy. at a time when some countries like europe and germany are opening their doors wide to migrants and refugees, countries like italy are starting to close those doors. recently more than 30 mayors from towns and cities in this province went to rome to demand that number of refugees being sent here be reduced. so for this year, more than 120,000 migrants and refugees arrived in italy sparking demand from some, more on the wealthy north than in the poorer south for a crack down. the welcome says 22-year-old victor from nigeria, is wearing thin. >> maybe you would like it play football with them, but no, no, no, no. we dent want black here. >> he fled nigeria after boca what ran killed his brother. this woman asked we not show her face or mention her name.
11:13 pm
she said she fled after boca horan killed her daughter. they hope for a better life here but sometimes feel like strangers in a very strange land. also from nigeria, requesting we not show her face. a rising tied of intolerance towards new-comers in this prosperous town. we have people who pray to jesus in church, to god, then outside church they say, let's kill them, send them home, sink their boats. hardly a welcoming attitude for those desperately in need of the kindness of strangers. ben wedeman, cnn, northern italy.
11:14 pm
>> a heart warming scene amid the sadness and chaos there. a father reunited with his child. a video sent in by garrett mcmanus capturing the moment when a family was reunited. two family members arrived first in munich then waited hopeful that their relatives who make it as well. not sure what country they came from or why they were separated but the family headed it a refugee camp now together. >> cnn senior international correspondent arwa damon has been covering this story, often traveling with the migrants. check out her account on our website, at she has been walking along with them and has really been with them for days on end.
11:15 pm
that's on our website. u.s. president barack obama calls it a victory for diplomacy. u.s. senators narrowly voted done a measure that would have set up a yes or no vote for the iran nuclear agreement. now there is no clans for senators who oppose it to kill it. we learn more from michelle kozinski. >> after all this time, debit and emotion the white house gets the vote they've been waiting for. getting enough support among democrats in the senate just enough support, in fact, for them to filibuster and block the vote of disapproval that republicans have been pushing so hard for. this means now that the deal can begin to be implemented. almost immediate lit president put out a statement calling it a victory for diplomacy. for national security. and for the safety and security in the world. not everybody in congress was willing to give up so quickly.
11:16 pm
there was talk of possibly a revote on this next week in the hopes of getting a few democrats it change their minds. and republicans in the house passed a resolution shortly afterward saying they believe the president violated the law by not providing enough information about what they call secret side deals between iran and the international atomic energy agency. that could potentially down the road be used as a basis for a legal challenge to the iran deal. what does the white house say about that and the fact, remember, that even though they get their deal implemented, majority of the u.s. congress is still opposed to it. the white house calls these attempts a gambit and said that republicans in congress nearly set themselves up to be a spoiler it a deal that the world supports. michelle kozinski, cnn, the white house. >> we'll see if that deal comes up at the next republican debate brought to you by cnn. ahead here, we'll tell you who will take the stage and break
11:17 pm
down some new poll numbers leading up to this debate one week from tonight. that's next. the promise of the cloud is that every organization has unlimited access to information, no matter where they are. the microsoft cloud gives our team the power to instantly deliver critical information to people, whenever they need it. here at accuweather, we get up to 10 billion data requests every day. the cloud allows us to scale up so we can handle that volume. we can help keep people safe; and to us that feels really good. iflike i love shrimp, red lobster's endless shrimp... kind of a big deal. it's finally back, with as much shrimp as you want, any way you want 'em. one taste of these new pineapple habanero coconut shrimp bites, and i already want more. they even brought back wood-grilled teriyaki shrimp! yeah, you heard me: teriyaki. and really: what's not to love about... ...buttery garlic shrimp scampi?
11:18 pm
here, the sweet, spicy, crispy possibilities are as endless as the shrimp. and yeah, they're endless, but they won't last forever. what did iran's supreme leader get in the nuclear deal? to start with, $100 billion. they keep their nuclear facilities and ballistic missiles. there won't be surprise anytime-anywhere inspections. and after ten years, restrictions are lifted and iran could build a nuclear weapon in two months. congress should reject a bad deal. we need a better deal.

12:01 am
agency reports that rescue teams are struggling to meet some people stranded by floodwaters. the area affected is along a river in osaki city in northeastern japan. nhk reports 20 meters section of levy, that's about 65 feet, collapsed on friday. >> a tropical storm spawned the fast-rising waters. people had little warning that this was about to happen. right there. houses just swept away so far thatity powerful system has caused three deaths, 22 people are missing but hundreds of thousands of apparently got out in time. powerful seen from mother nature there. let's go north of joes of city. will ripley joins us this hour. will, some people are trying to reach the city after the levy collapse. what more can you tell us? >> reporter: what i can tell you
12:02 am
is that the situation here, since the sun has been out, and it hasn't been raining, it is improving. we have been talking since yesterday about the fear that as of the rain system moves up to places like osaki, we with see more repeats of what we saw here, which is these tremendously powerful floods that lifted up cars, tossed them here and caused a whole lot of damage. we know that houses of buildings have been flooded. hundreds of them destroyed. others with very serious damage and people with a lot of cleaning up. infrastructure damage. damage to so many different cars. and yes, still people who are missing and unaccounted for. at least 22 people still missing in the floodwaters p. very troubling because you would hope that by now, now that a full 24 hours passed that they would have had some way it call and contact authorities to either let them know they're okay or let them know that they need help.
12:03 am
death toll up to three right now and there is still a door it door search happening. still helicopters in in the air which you can hear. at one point i counted 11 helicopters in the air. dent see that many flying at least in this particular area. they are also out on boats. now as can you see, able to walk on the streets as well. checking homes it make sure that people are okay. >> will seeing you there in the water and knowing thousands of people have been forced out of theirs homes. how are officials there helping people who will have to wait until their homes can be restored, cleaned up? >> and you know from covering plenty of disasters yourself, george, water damage is one of the hardest and most destructive forces. can you see how high the water was. it is well over the fence here. it is covered with dry grass. so anybody who lived for example in the first four units of this apartment building, their entire homes were flooded. and even damage done on the
12:04 am
second floor. you saw people standing up on balconies like this, waving for helicopters to rescue them yesterday. they have to deal with flooding damage as well. 100 emergency centers are open and they are dealing with thousands of people flown in by helicopter in many cases. those who needed medical attention taken to the hospital everybody else was brought it these centers where they were given food and clothing. food and medical supplies. anything they need in the immediate days take yn care of. in the weeks ahead, they will try it find out why they live as damage is repaired. it is a reality this people are having it face, even with the sun shining here. >> a long clean-up as we see, street by street flooded there. cnn's will ripley reporting live in joso city. will, thank you for your
12:05 am
reporting there. >> derek is here to tell us that sunshine won't last. the question is, will there be more rain they have to deal with or a chance of more flooding? >> fortunately a break in precipitation. as you saw in will's live shot, going back to how he mentioned, the water to the second floor. that's 10 feet. 3 meters. that's unbelievable stuff. you have to be close to that breach in the levy in order to have water height as disasterous as that. here is a look at some aerial photos and visuals out of that region. once again, water covering about 37 square kilometers and sweeping away anything in its path. this is equivalent to about 20 meters wider, roughly 65 feet. but the amazing thing is that that quadrupled in size in a matter of mere minutes and that sudden rush of water led to
12:06 am
water levels rising to the second story of buildings. what a difference a day can make. this is tokyo's live sky cam. and this is when floodwaters were at its worse. 37 square kilometers inundated by the breach. there are several ways water can breach a levy. sometimes seeps through the middle of this ground barrier or land barrier that separates dry ground from a river or lake. but in this particular instance it was a river that overtopped this particular levy and in fact i have an image to show you. there's the broken levy. there's the berm or the particular levy breach that was breached and you can see what led to that. there are many scenes like this. this is in niko, japan. we let 24-hour, 36-hour and
12:07 am
48-hour rain fall totals. wednesday was a record. thursday was the fourth wettest day on record. and records two back several years, over 13,000 days of record keeping until this point. a brief break, brief lull at the moment. but showers are going to return once again as a weak cold front settled in across the region late on sunday night and into monday. you can see rain fall totals just north of tokyo there. i will quickly switch gears and quickly talk about images in the middle east. do you see the sandstorm that swept across the region? yeah. unbelievable stuff. you guys, nasa sent out satellite images of that sandstorm just settling in to israel and syria and inundating cities.
12:08 am
really making the air quality quite hazardous for places like jerusalem and gaza strip. >> hopefully it helps fighting in syria. >> exactly. >> u.s. president barack obama is ordering his administration to step up its response to the syrian refugee crisis. the white house now says it will take in at left 10,000 refugees over the next year. >> there was an ugly scene thursday, riot police in macedonia seen here. beating migrants with batons as they tried to enter the country from greece. and romania now says it opposes a u.n. quota plan for relocating migrant throughout the continent. some refugees are making the long journey across europe by foot. others taking to the sea for a better chance to find a better life. >> any way they can find it they are doing it. in the era of facebook some are turning to social media for help.
12:09 am
ivan watson talked with people who used their smart phones to help save their lives. >> setting out to sea, motoring out to the turkish coast on what could be a relaxing cruise and we are following the trail of tens of thousands of migrants and refugees trying to reach europe. here's what's crazy about the economics of this wave of human migration. it cost us 600 euros to charter this private sailboat to carry our entire cnn team from turkey to gross. smugglers are charging syrian refugees exactly double that per person. 1200 euros to board overcrowded ruby dingies to take them to that greek island. this is what the migrant voyage it greece looks like. it isn't just more expensive, it is also dangerous. we find floating in the sea aa
12:10 am
lone life jacket. below crumbling fortifications that once guarded the greek island of lesbos, migrants wash clothes on the beach and pitch tents in the park. the greek authority are processiprocess my grants migrants as fast as they can. we find seven syrians who just arrived on a raft from turkey. when their boat ran into trouble. 19-year-old kanan said they were ready with their cell phones. >> we just call the police in the sea so they come -- >> greek police? >> yes, greek police. >> how do you call them? >> we have all their numbers. we have gps on our cell phones. we send them and they come to save us. >> the police came to save you? >> yes. >> reporter: kanan shows me a
12:11 am
facebook page with advice for syrians on the trail to europe. >> what is this? >> thing to bring. go to another country. >> so all the instructions -- >> yes. everything. everything you need. >> some of the refugees are so organized they have taken to putting out distress calls at sea on facebook with gps coordinates to help guide the coast guard. >> facebook is playing an incredible role. >> reporter: an aide worker said she has never seen such tech savvy coordinations between refugees he before. >> when they arrive they know where to go, who to talk to, what to buy. >> reporter: there are about 50 boats a day landing on lesbos. 1,000 to 3,000 migrants daily using this place as an unieshl gateway it europe. an island which beaches now
12:12 am
littered with life jackets. those life jackets hopefully symbols that many people made p alive. ivan is on the island of lesbos, he joins me by phone. and ivan your report we saw about the use of social media that goes to show how connected many of these people are and how they are helping each other out and that just keeps them coming, i guess. >>. >> reporter: absolutely. and the refugees are arriving with a certain amount of confidence many have said that relatives have made the journey in previous days. it is incredible it see how prepared they are. i watched the fourth of four rafts land over the stretch after half-hour period on one stretch of beach here on the island of lesbos.
12:13 am
dump willing scores of refugees and migrants on to the beach. and what was striking is that many of them had waterproof pouchs that they were carrying smart phones in. carrying their passports in. and as soon as they got on board, stripped off and left their life jackets on beach, quickly picked up by greek municipal workers and dumped into garbage trucks, the refugees knew which direction to trudge towards town to start the processing with greek authorities and then to get into the line for a greek ferry to the greek capital, athens. >> triumphant victory crossing the water p. they have a long road, uncertain to go as well. but it is a very interesting report and we've seen that man right there who's very overwhelmed that he made it.
12:14 am
thank you, ivan watson for us there in lesbos. >> just stunned a not shocked by his report showing the life vests. >> the orange uniform, as they put it. >> the senators took up a procedural vote on thursday and the vote means as far as the u.s. senate is concerned that deal can not be blocked. even so, republican-led house of representatives just passed a resolution accusing barack obama of breaking the law with the deal. >> it says he did not provide congress with information about side deals involving iranian nuclear site inspections. that does not prevent the agreement from going through. but could set up future legal challenges against it.
12:15 am
both votes came after israel's leader, flatly predicted that israel won't be around 25 years from now and warned between now and then israel would have to worry about what he called the spirit of fighting heroism and jihad. israeli prime minister netanyahu quickly responded to the post saying, quote, he doesn't leave any room for supporters of the nuclear group to fantasize in. >> m london where he met with david cameron at number 10 downing street, asserting that middle east is dissent grating but there isn't much israel can do to stop it. >> middle east, under the twin forces of islam militant,

12:23 am
the very spot last week when all those migrants who had had it with hungary, hadn't been stuck in that train, got off and started walking, picked up by buses and this is the spot where they knew they had finally cleared into austria and look at this. they just keep coming. >> and this here, taped -- the tape we just turned, but it shows you just how many people are coming and this is just a daily occurrence again as this situation continues. people leaving syria and other war-torn areas, looking it find a better life for themselves. >> just bags in their hands. clothes on their back. my goodness. >> we turn now to the latest in the u.s. presidential race. the line-up has been announced for next week's cnn republican debate. >> so out of 17 candidates, 11 will participate in this prime time event. that includes donald trump, carly fiorina and senators marco

12:25 am
donald trump and ben carson and really try and revive his campaign at this point. >> watch the republican candidates face off in back to back debates. 7:00 a.m. in tokyo. only here on cnn. ? some candidates are blasting donald trump p. the front-runner is taking heat for comments he made about fiorina. >> trump is quoted as insoughting fiorina's appearance. he he told cnn earlier he want talking about her face. along with fiorina, jeb bush and bobby jindal have words for trump. >> maybe just maybe i'm getting under his stkin a little bit. >> i don't see how you can insult your way through the

12:28 am
>> it is not the politics of fear. it is politics of hope. >> donald trump also has popular appeal. >> the main reason i support trump is because he is not politically correct, i'd say. >> loud, boisterous and i want it hear someone with a little guts say yes. >> observers say both trump and corbin are tapping into the same emotions. >> i this what i is given the parties and individual momentum is the austerity that followed the 2007, 2008 financial crash. and the belief that's flowed from that. globalization, international capitalism is basically there for the rich, the 1%. >> the gov yearning class has become a professional club. and there a tendency to think, maybe this is some sort of conspiracy against the people. >> so two these two outsiders
12:29 am
good all the way? will we ever see president trump welcoming prime minister corbyn to the white house? >> i think the idea of jeremy corbyn of prime minister of britain is preposterous. the idea of donald trump as president of the united states is preposterous. but they can deeply damage the establishment parties. >> however far they get in their campaigns, donald trump, jeremy corbyn, and others like them were are putting a passion and polarization back into politics. max foster, cnn, london. >> yes, that they are certainly doing. certainly rattling nerves of the traditional candidates as well, aren't they? as we've been telling you, thousands of syrian refugees continue on the move. some now arriving in germany. after an exhausting trek through
